The Way of the Woods

The forest is truly sustainable, it runs on sunlight and water, there's no waste, everything is endlessly recycled into more and more complex systems, it's resilient, drought, pest, disease and flood resistant, everything supports and benefits from everything else, there's communication through an underground network and it's anarchic... Why shouldn’t it be a model for any sustainable system and what if we think of ourselves and our settlements as part of a forest?
There's similarities in natural therapies like CranioSacral Therapy, low-impact building and growing food in a sustainable way, you can see it all in the forest, the way of the woods.
